My daughter went through 3 years of this medication or that medication, and all of them had such bad side effects that they were not worth the few minor results we saw. Then one day I found this all natural herbal stuff called Focus Drops. Here is the link to read more about it http://www.nativeremedies.com/products/m... it tells what is in it and how it works. My daughter has now been on these drops for almost 2 years and they beat any of the prescribed meds by a long way. They did NOT cure her ADHD, and she is still hiper, but the results we saw were amazing.

Hi girls

Also wanted to add that aromatherapy - herbs and oils is a great way to induce different states you are looking at creating. Also growing herbs and gardening not only gives medicinal and therapeutic benefits it also gets our children focused and involved and outside amongst nature, being tactile and the list goes on. Enjoy and don't forget the simplist and more common varieties like lavender and our herbs for cooking. Get your kids to touch the plants and smell them. love and blesses, Dianne

My son uses a supplement with ginko biloba, grapseed and grapeseed extract. It works for him and he's super healthy and we don't have to go to the dr. each month for a refill like we would have with medications.

Sandy, go further than simply natural foods. Look at a) sugar content in fruits e.g. An apple preceding or followed by a juice drink plays with a persons system, whether ADHD or not. Look at b) combination of foods c) making sure all the family are on an alkaline diet even the water you drink ph test the water ...barley grass is a neutralizer...add that to smoothies d) agree to avoid gluten e) avoid processed foods f) even avoid foods like rice crackers that have powders on them for flavour including in noodle packets g) HERBS rosemary (for memory) and thyme are great for digestion and breaking down meats if you eat meat h) chamomile of course for calming i) parsley is great to eat fresh and in salads usually kids will eat that no worries, my son loves eating it fresh and it's great for freshening breath ...okay just off the top of my head...will try and come back to this... love and blesses

I was also going to suggest a diet change. Limiting sugars/caffine/colors/ect will help tremendously. Talk to your son's physican first though, you don't want to do something that wouldn't be healthy for him!!!!!

Hi Sandy, changing his diet is the first step to a more normal childhood. My step-son (who is now 18 and moved out) has ADHD, and we had him on a strict diet of all natural foods. No colors, (especially blue/red) no preservatives. It did make a huge difference. After he left, I found a company that has vitamins that are desinged to help with the effects of ADHD, and they are all natural!! I know they work because I have a friend who has a son with ADHD, and when he takes his vitamins he is less hyper and more focused. If you would like to learn more about these vitamins, PM me!!

I have never tried herbs, but I took all of the chemicals out of the house and put my son on natural vitamins. It has been working for him. I loved the products so much that I actually signed up to tell other people about them.

If you want to hear more about it, let me know.

God Bless!!

Not sure about herbs, been looking into that myself. But I have a son who has ADHD and Bipolar along with sensory issues. I have been giving him extra B vitimans, especially B12. I have also recently started giving him Spirulina (a blue green algae). I give him capsules for that but you can use powders as well. This seems to be helping my son. Have you ever tried diet changes like eliminating gluten/casein and other foods known to trigger ADHD like symptoms? I have been doing that with my son and again it seems to be helping.
